Went to Nick's tires today and he did the white walls for me. No more flapping dirty Port-o-walls. :dance: It's pretty cool how its done. They chuck up the tire in a tire machine, push an electric sander against the tire to the width you want while the tire rotates slowly in the machine. Then an adhesion promoter is brushed on followed by the white paint. All while the tire turns in the machine. For $50 :thumbs:

Thanks!!
All 4 tires. That also included breaking down the tires to get the Port O walls out.

I have had a few sets of tires done by them. It's great and amazing. All that white wall is just hiding under there. Lol

I've been going to nick for about 4yrs... I've always been happy, but certain tires will bleed thru and the whitewalls will turn a brownish/black color... Something to do with the material in the tires... he charges $50 for all 4 ...
